CORALVILLE (KWWL) -

We now know the cause of death for two people who were found dead in a Coralville hotel room.

Coralville police say the Johnson County Medical Examiner's autopsies ruled the cause of death for both Penny Herman and John Tromba as "Mixed Drug Intoxication." Both heroin and Alprazolam were found in their systems. The deaths have been ruled accidental.

Coralville police responded to the Suburban Extended Stay on December, 9, 2014. A hotel manager had found the two bodies in a room.

The manager says the two were long-term guests of the hotel who were in the area working on a construction project.

In the hotel, investigators found a white powder which they determined was heroin.
